I shine, the city never looked so bright



This is a super fun, pattern playing look that I wore recently to the grand opening of Calypso St Barth’s in Georgetown! I love the fashion forward yet office style feel of the look, and the comfort factor was a major plus. The ensemble was also great for the amazing networking and mingling at the event; shout out to the lovely new ladies I met!

Freedom Hangs Like Heaven Over Everyone

Fun, inspired, and almost completely vintage look that I absolutely love to wear! The dress was handmade for my grandmother in Russia many, many years ago, and the Liz Claiborne hat was also inherited from her. I purchased the vest from a thrift shop literally about 10 years ago, and still find ways to wear it!
The spiked bracelet is from TopShop, the ring is from Francesca’s Collection, and the bangles are from various shops, including Target!

Death Is Her Boyfriend

Completely enjoying everything black and winged lately; can ya tell? I wore this outfit to baby sit a couple of days before Halloween; a little chic take on a Vampira meets a Bat Girl.

Lace Batwings

I’m BACK! After a tumultuous October, I’m finally getting my life, and that includes this blog, back on track! The weather here in New England has been rather temperate, even with the impending Hurricane Sandy. I celebrated by going out in shorts, albeit UniqLo HeatTech, but still!

Why Does it Always Feel Like I’m Caught In an undertow?

I wore this outfit out to the adult arcade, Dave and Buster’s the other night. I think it was fun and appropriate, though my rings kept getting in the way during basketball and skeeball and were eventually removed.

Fall Pinks and Browns

It’s finally feeling somewhat like fall…somewhat being it’s mid-October and still comfortable outside in a tee shirt. Okay, it’s hardly fall at all. But each breath has that fall air. The leaves are FINALLY beginning to change their shades and fall to litter our sidewalks. Evenings require a light jacket or sweater. Pumpkins are filling the deli’s. It’s exciting. All I want to do is go on long walks, listening to Death Cab for Cutie and the crunching of leaves.

Scarf from an NYC Street Vendor

H&M jeans

Forever 21 boots

TopShop and Target bracelets

One of my favorite things about NYC is the street vendor scarves. $5 a pop gets you a pashmina-silk scarf that’s surprisingly warm and durable. OR you can get 5 for $20…I always get one for my friends and family as an extra add on to Christmas gifts!

Also, I know a lot of people are still complimenting my “anti-french” manicure, and I’m still loving it each day. Point in case, the faint purple shade was a perfect match to the tonal stripes of this top!

NYFW Day 1, Part 2: Arrojo 10th Anniversary Party

During Joe Zee’s keynote speech at the IFB Conference, I made a dash for the bathroom to quickly change into a more suitable party ensemble for the rest of the night. The first stop was the 10th Anniversary party for Arrojo salons.

Walking in I notice Tatum, the lovely (and might I add, attractive) man who cut my hair at the last Arrojo event I attended was spinning as the DJ as the place swarmed with fashionable and awesomely tressed guests. I ran into Kimberly of Can I get a What What again, as well as seeing Keiko, and many of my NYC Fashion Blogger friends.As previously stated, my tousled locks stayed all night, thanks to KMS California.

Nick Arrojo VJ’d for a bit, talking about his fond memories of the beginnings of his now famed company. He spun a few oldies hits, then came to dance with us ladies, and “backing dat azz up” with Ashley and taking goofy pictures with all of us.

For this portion of my day I wore a gifted dress from Francesca’s Collection, along with my moto boots. I had originally planned to wear my Lady GaGa second skin platforms, but I hadn’t had enough to drink and was in too much pain to wear them for hours.

Stay tuned for part three of NYFW Day 1, and then FNO!
